Astros prospect Brady Rodgers to start All Star Game

October 16, 2017

Brady Rodgers’ breakout season in Class AAA has earned him the starting nod for the Pacific Coast League in the Triple-A All-Star Game on July 13 in Charlotte, N.C.

Rodgers has gone from unprotected in December’s Rule 5 Draft to perhaps the frontrunner for a potential promotion if the Astros were to need a starter from Class AAA. The 25-year-old righthander has a 2.83 ERA and PCL-best 1.03 WHIP in 13 starts for Fresno this year.

Fellow Fresno righthanders James Hoyt and Mike Hauschild will join Rodgers at the Triple-A All-Star Game, which pits the PCL against the International League. The 29-year-old Hoyt has been dominant as Fresno’s closer, striking out 68 batters in 38 1/3 innings while posting a 1.88 ERA and converting a PCL-best 19 saves. Hauschild, 26, has a 3.02 ERA in 14 starts.
